Release Date: Jan 4, 2017


It's not often that three enemies come together, but if buffalos can have wings, anything is possible. Singer/guitarist Scott Thomas and bassist Eric Schiwe met in school. Schiwe pulled Thomas' chain wallet, and it broke. The two have hated each other ever since. Singer/keyboardist Montana Loran and Thomas worked together and hated their job, so in turn, they hated each other. The three often played in the same circles, but never together, until 2010. Wanting to test the limits of patience and sanity, the three decided to form a band in the small town of Montclair, New Jersey.

In 2011 and 2013, the “alluring rock trio” (NJ.com) recorded their EPs, Small Dogs in Heat. Volumes 1 & 2, in Loran’s bedroom. In 2014, they began working on their first full-length album, Charmed, I’m Sure, which was mostly recorded in Thomas’ roommates’ bedroom. The roommate didn’t mind because he was in jail at the time.
